    Always fun to make these threads and look back and see how much things changed or stayed the same. 2013 will be particularly interesting for all the top four. Djokovic trying to prove he's still the man to beat, Fed trying to beat age, Rafa trying to come back from injury, and Murray trying to follow up on his first major.

    AO: Murray
    Historically his best major, and with the confidence boost from the USO I can see him taking this title
    FO: Novak
    More of a hopeful pick, but I can see Novak winning the FO. Nadal isn't going to win it forever
    W: Nadal but I really want Murray to win this one the most
    Probably the only slam that you could make an equal case for all four players. I think Nadal or Murray will take it.
    USO: Novak
    Novak has been the best USO player in the past few years

    AO- tough one, can't see Djokovic winning 3 in a row, can't see federer or Nadal doing it, so Murray..

    RG - Djokovic (out of hope more than anything)

    W - Murray

    US Open Djokovic


    Can't believe I'm picking Murray to win 2 slams next year :lol:

    I think they will still be Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and US Open.

    But I think UMAG is close to getting major status and replacing French Open

    Cincy will officially usurp the French Open as a slam next year, courtesy of Tiriac.

    If Murray wins any slams in 2013, someone else will have to take out Nadal. I don't think Murray played well enough at this year's Wimbledon/US Open to beat Nadal.

    IMO I think it's more a question of what shape Nadal will be in when he finally returns to the tour and whether it will be good enough to take on a Murray with improved confidence and momentum.

    AO: Djokovic- His best place, Rafa may not be 100%, hard to bet against him
    FO: Rafa (if healthy), if not, Roger- He's been great at RG, just not as good as that one Spanish guy that's always on the other side of the net. No Rafa= Mental uplift for Rogi, and hopefully, a RG title
    WI: Fed or Murray- They were both amazing on grass this year, it may just come down to roof/no roof and if Roger can do well at RG
    Cincy: Fed- Fast hard court, I'll be there to cheer him on, he can't lose ;)
    USO: Fed/Djoko/Muzza/Rafa- big log-jam here. If Rafa gets to 100% and is slamless to this point, he'll be wanting this one. Murray is defending champ, so he has a shot. Djokovic is Djokovic, so he has a shot. If Federer has the year that I have him at right now (2 slams and Cincy), he could very well have too much momentum to be stopped, which I'd be fine with :)

    wimbledon - murray ??? what the hell, the guy will definitely choke and with nadal in the draw it is impossible, dont take the statistics of the recent match, overall scenario should be analyzed.

    Who says Nadal will even be in the draw,and why does it even matter? It's not like Andy can't beat him or anything. Andy has a very good chance of winning Wimby. He did make the final this year,and is a good grass court player.
